In the past, Plymouth has been known to suffer with flooding due to being so close to the sea, as well as suffering flash floods in places throughout the city. Excess damp from flooding can lead to problems such as penetrating or rising damp, causing timber decay and potential dangerous structural damage.
The Barbican area in Plymouth has some of the oldest listed buildings in the city, some being Tudor and others being Jacobean. All of these buildings could be prone to dry rot and damp due to their age but buildings such as the Minerva Inn pub (the oldest pub in Plymouth) which holds a lot of timber framing, need to be looked after and often checked for the likes of dry or wet rot and woodworm.
With over 60 years of trading behind us, Peter Cox has been the UK’s leading damp proofing and timber preservation company since 1989. Take a look through some of our case studies to see some of the projects we have worked on over the years.
